of this is that the nra's power had -- the nra was caught in this kind of virtuous circle for itself, in which its projection of power equalled real power. and the real power fed the perception of its power. and now that's been punctured. it really has. people wake up in the morning and there's stilt members of congress and it's not the on slaugt they thought. and tha is a huge change in the politics of the issue. >> when you look at the president as proposed, universal background checks, stricter penalties for gun trafficking, how much of that is realistically possible? >> i think at this moment, we've seen real bipartisan support for background checks. and i think we've seen probably some support around assault weapons ban that we might likely get. >>> i've got to tell you, i think on the high magazines, the high-capacity magazines strikes me the most challenging not because of the common sense policy nature of it, but because there's a lot of income to be earned by some fairly powerful groups around those high-capacity magazines. >> i also think -- detect one note of some dissent. i do think we

background check i should say. 92% of americans, including nra members support this. why do you believe the nra is still defiant, at least on universal background checks where people cannot just walk to a gun show or walk to a private home and walk away with a weapon? >> the answer is really simple, tamron. the leadership of the nra, the top executives of the nra, their business is helping the ma manufacturers, their organizational supporters, to sell more guns. so they're interested in more purchases, however they're done. as you said, 74% of nra members themselves are for universal background checks and a vast majority of the gun owners themselves. normal people understand that everyone ought to be selected so that they're not a criminal, they don't have a history of mental illness that's been reported. those people shouldn't have guns and everyone in america practically agrees. >> let me transition to what's happening with chuck hagel and the senate. i want your perspective in that our first team says that this is a reminder for all that future legislative fights and nominations batt
